  • Voices: Janay and Ray Rice, Domestic Violence, and the NFL

    Kendra James
    11 Sep 2014 | 5:00 am
    Patrick Semansky/Associated Press But an unfortunate and perverse consequence of Donald Sterling’s massive profits from the sale of the L.A. Clippers is that admitting one’s racism is profitable. Thus white men profit from saying and doing racist things, while organizations like the NBA get to claim that they are taking strong stances against racism in the league. But ferreting out individual racists will never solve the problem of systemic racism. It simply makes everyone feel better. Similarly problematic thinking is evident in the Baltimore Ravens’ decision to terminate Ray Rice’s…
  • What Bill O’Reilly gets wrong about Asian Americans

    10 Sep 2014 | 5:00 am
    Credit: Frank Micelotta/invision/AP By guest contributor Kevin Wong (originally posted at Salon.com) Bill O’Reilly went to Harvard and grew up in Levittown, a Long Island town that is 94 percent white. He attended a private boy’s school on Long Island that is 90 percent white and currently costs more than $8,000 a year to attend. And yet he recently remarked that white privilege is a lie — that being white gives a person no inherent advantages in America. Irony is dead. It is obvious, to anyone paying the slightest attention, that white privilege does exist, that legal equality is…

  • Crime in Puerto Rico: How Bad is It?

    José Cobas
    2 Sep 2014 | 10:06 am
    TweetA recent article in Latino Fox News decries the “serious” crime situation in the island: Puerto Rico . . . suffers from an astronomic violent crime rate; the U.S. territory registered 13 murders in the first five days of 2014 – four of them occurring during a single night. Thirteen murders in five days constitute an verage 2.6 murders per day. However, this figure is not as ominous when compared with cities in the U.S. such as Detroit: Six people have been killed and nine shot during a 24-hour period in [Detroit]. This round of violence began early Thursday morning and extended…

    TweetRecent Central American migration has generated numerous protests across the U.S. Yet this backlash differs because the primary targets of white anti-immigrant sentiment are Guatemalan, Salvadorian, and Honduran children. This humanitarian crisis and the subsequent relocation of undocumented families to various border patrol stations and detention centers has led to significant increases in anti-immigrant and anti-Latina/o rallies and demonstrations. The protest signs reveal a hodgepodge of political, economic, patriotic, and emotional reactions as evidenced in the following pictures…
